Algeria Immigration Services

​​​​​​• Algeria’s immigration system provides limited options for employers of foreign nationals​. While business visitors may obtain a Business Visa to stay in Algeria for up to 90 days, they are advised to limit their stay to 15 days. Foreign nationals whose stay exceeds 90 days require a Residence Permit.
 
• There are two main work authorization types: Annex 13 Declaration (valid for 15 days with permissible extensions for a maximum stay of 90 days per calendar year); and Work Permit (valid for one year, with permissible extensions). Both types of permits are processed locally and each province (wilaya) may apply its own interpretation of the requirements.​​
